  • Excerpt: Good for pratically all scenes. Fast shot and excelent for low lights. Flash left to be desired a little bit. Problems: To switch from movie to pictures is a little bit confused and it's not too fast.

Better than Transllucent Mirrors

WWJDwithCA, Amazon
9 October 2011
  • Summary: The Sony a580 is an excellent camera that has really been lost in all of the excitement with the new translucent mirror products, particularly the a55 and the new a77. Just surveying the number of reviews, the a77 had four reviews before the product was even released and the a55 with 88!

  • Excerpt: Here's what I wanted in a good new digital camera along with a load of information that I wish I could have found all in one place when I was doing my research. I know my way around cameras, but I am not a professional photographer and I am not receiving compensation for this review!

Fabius, Amazon
25 September 2011
  • Summary: I have a Sony a300 and upgraded to the a580 recently - for the record, I really like the a300 and am keeping it. The a580 has some great improvements - mirror lock-up is great for those 500mm telephoto shots, depth of field preview is nice, focus check live-view magnification really makes it great...

  • Excerpt: I have been through quite a few cameras with my most recent being the fabulous Sony A550, which was a great camera. I was able to do basically anything I want to with this camera and it just kept performing. My only reason for upgrading to the A580 was because it has Full HD Movie capabilities.
